tsuketate 付立
KEY WORD : art history / paintings
A type of *mokkotsu 没骨 technique. Tsuketate does not use outline, rather a brush technique that creates forms by using a flourish of the brush, thus expressing volume and color at the same time. When outline is not used it is considered a mokkotsu technique. A special brush is used for this purpose, called a tsuketatefude 付立筆 (often mistakenly referred to as a *hake 刷毛), which has long, thick, flexible bristles. Maruyama Oukyo 円山応挙 (1733-95), and the Maruyama-Shijou school *Maruyama-Shijouha 円山四条派 are famous for their use of tsuketate technique.
